Under the Private Education Act, legislated in December 2009, a Committee for Private Education was set up to regulate the private education industry in Singapore.  From 03 October 2016, the Committee for Private Education became part of a new statutory board – SkillsFuture Singapore (SSG). Under the new structure, the SSG Board appointed the Committee for Private Education (CPE) to carry out its functions and powers relating to private education under the Private Education Act. All Private Education Institutions (PEIs) are required to comply with the regulations under the Act in order to continue operations.

KLC International Institute has achieved a 4-year EduTrust status effective from 3 August 2015 – 2 August 2019.

For more information, please refer to CPE website: www.cpe.gov.sg

CPE, in aiming to enhance the confidence of students and their parents in the quality of education in Singapore, has stipulated that all PEIs must sign a PEI-Student Contract with students. The contract lays out the important terms and conditions governing the relationship between the student and KLC International Institute. KLC International Institute will execute a student contract for every course unless the course is less than 30 days or 50 hours in duration. We will honour all terms and conditions spelt out in all contracts issued and in all communication materials.

Students may request for a copy of the PEI-Student Contract from KLC International Institute.

There will be a cooling-off period of 7 working days after signing the standard PEI-Student Contract. Students have the right to cancel the contract within 7 working days and be entitled to the full refund of the Total Course Fee and Miscellaneous Fee less any fees that have already been consumed. After the cooling-off period, KLC International Institute refund policy will apply.

KLC International Institute has in place a Fee Protection Scheme (FPS) to protect the paid fees of both local and international students. The FPS serves to protect the student’s fees in the event that the PEI is unable to continue operations due to insolvency, and/or regulatory closure. In addition, the FPS protects the student if the PEI fails to pay penalties or return fees to the student arising from judgments made against it by the Singapore courts. The FPS is compulsory for all students.

KLC International Institute has appointed Liberty Insurance as our FPS insurance provider. Under the FPS insurance scheme, students’ fees are insured by Liberty Insurance. In case of events, as stated above, students will be able to claim their paid fees from Liberty Insurance. KLC International Institute will arrange to protect students’ fees with Liberty Insurance within 7 days of fee payment.

More details of the FPS can also be found in the FPS Instruction Manual, available at CPE’s website.
